As you can see below, I have a new podcast episode up, but the feed is broken yet again. I'm trying to resolve these issues, but I thought this would be a good opportunity to request someone's help in trying to resolve these long-standing issues. I'm know enough about this web stuff to get myself in trouble and with these repeated issues with Feedburner, I'd have pulled out all my hair if I hadn't already lost it all. So, if you or someone you know can be of help, please drop me a line at thecandidframe(at)

In the meantime, check out the work of one of my Art Center student's Hiroshi Clark. His posts regularly on his blog and produces some very interesting work. Let him know what you think.

There is lot to be said for simplicity. This image is like many dawn or sunset images that are made everyday, but because of a small and simple accent the nearly pristine quality of the water and sky become that much more impactful. With the presence of the negative space, in the figure of the man, the contrast becomes significantly more dramatic. Very cool shot.

The Candid Frame #101 - Chris Porsz

Chris Porsz is an amateur photographer who has been documenting his community of Peterborough, England as a street photographer. His candid images of strangers document a particular time in the life of a town and its people, which is made all the more poignant by his recent rediscovery of these same subjects. His then and now portraits reveal not only how people have changed, but how the town has as well. Working as a full-time paramedic, he has created all of his images using his personal time, making him an a great example of how a photographer can make significant work even without becoming a "professional. You can discover more about him and his work by reading this article or visiting his website.

Chris Porsz recommends the work of Don McCullin.

This is an image that breaks a lot of rules. It doesn't have a solid black. It suffers from overexposure and flare and a lack of contrast and color saturation. Yet, it works and that's what I love about it. It has a wonderful feel to it and it's a great moment. There are other images that are more technically "perfect" but are empty. This is anything but.
